Negotiation Details – Initial offer was very straight forward with standard starting salary with little room to negotiate. the salary was a bit lower than expected but i was reassured that there would be over-time and bonus opportunities however this did not turn out to be accurate in my group. over-time opportunities are definitely available in some groups but not all.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at State Street in September 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online and got a call back within several days. Had initial phone screening, which consisted of some basic questions. Asked how much I was currently making and was told the Associate I position pays only $32k per year for full time position. Explained to interviewer there was no way I could support myself on such pay. Was told an Associate II pays around $42k with bonus and was encouraged to apply for another role. Got the impression there was high turnover within these types of positions, although some of the roles sounded exciting. Needless to say I decided to stop pursuing any other opportunities with this firm.
Interview Question – Didn't even get to point of interview questions once salary for position was brought up by interviewer. Answer Question

Interview Details – Did an oncampus interview first followed by a 2.5 hr interview in their office. 2 separate panels focusing primarily on behavior based questions.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time you disagreed with a coworker. What did you disagree about and how did you resolve it? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Seems like a good place to work, but the pay was not sufficient to compete with other offers. One thing that is great for this field they do pay you for overtime. When comparing pay with public accounting firms this could be significatn as most public accounting firms pay a salary and work you beyond the 40 hrs/week.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at State Street in November 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process was pretty simple. Had a 30 min phone interview, discussed my education and experience, then was asked about 3-4 behavioural questions. Did 2 in-person interviews. The first was with a manager for about 40 min, asked a couple technical questions like what is NAV, and what is the difference between a stock and bond, then a few behavioural questions. 2nd interview was with two senior fund accountants, and they pretty much asked the same questions. They called me 2 weeks later to offer the job but I declined.
